I have 5-10K worth of funds to spend on new computing equipment. I have a separate set of funds for cloud/cluster computing for large-scale jobs, so this is more for a development/small-jobs computer.
Most of my research involves microarray, sequence analysis (usually not NGS), and what would now be considered 'medium scale' (10-200gb) datasets.
Does anyone have any ideas? I want as much RAM (preferably 128Gb) as possible and a screaming processor but I'm trying to stick within a desktop sized device.
